Collection of new, true horror stories from around the world - in the Vanishing Hitchhiker mode

'True are The NIGHTmare Of a person that FEARs
Safe A re the BODIES Of tHe Silent World'

When a young man first saw this message typed out on his computer at home a shiver ran down his spine. It was clear what was happening - the poltergeist which had plagued him for months was now manifesting itself in a most original, modern and terrifying way.

As the world around us experiences an epidemic of supernatural events, Alasdair Wickham collects together the strangest, creepiest and most enthralling in a compendium of brilliantly told and chillingly convincing tales. The Black Book of Modern Myths explores the richness and malevolence of the supernatural from across the globe, including possession, witchcraft and Mothmen sightings to cursed movie sets and ritualistic killings in the Cornish countryside. No mystery is left unexamined.

But beyond these traditional notions of the supernatural, The Black Book of Modern Myths shows us the paranormal connecting with the hi-tech world. These days, the ghosts really are in the machines...
